After a string of records for the likes of Nang and Cyclo Records plus their own imprint, Collective Situation arrive on United Recordings for a sumptuous 6 track EP of smokey vocal house titled ‘Midnight’.
The title track sounds effortless in its execution, an enviable blend of wispy vocal phrases from Lauren Rimell, restrained chords and sturdy low end. As the name suggests, it’s the perfect edit for those late-night intimate club sessions.
Griffen provides the first of 5 mixes. It’s a funky, complex rendition, doffing it’s cap to broken beat with some strong switch-ups and excellent drum work. Next up we have the Space Coast dub, bringing that laid back summer vibe to an otherwise twilight-orientated release. Watch out for the otherworldly synth motifs!
The package is complete with an instrumental of the original and a sneaky little original B-side titled ‘Feel Like A Queen’. It’s an altogether cheekier affair with some playful but equally as effective vocals from Rimell accompanied by some peak-time crushed disco funk. the keys are fire on this one!
